Earlier this month, Mouser was a major presenting co-sponsor of the FIRST in Texas/UIL State Robotics Championships. Mouser also supports FIRST teams in its community, providing grants for local high school teams.

"Education has been a key facet of Mouser's mission since our founding," said Kevin Hess, Mouser's Senior Vice President of Marketing. "We are very excited to once again sponsor the FIRST Robotics Competition, which we have proudly supported for years. The organization gives students around the world a platform for innovation, a chance to learn valuable engineering skills, and an opportunity to build character and self-esteem."

Since 2014, Mouser has been a major supporter of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a leading student-serving nonprofit advancing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Mouser sponsors FIRST virtual and live competitions at the local, regional, state, and international levels. Joining Mouser in the sponsorship is valued manufacturer partner Analog Devices, Inc.

Each FIRST Robotics Competition team receives access to a Kit of Parts system — including motors, batteries, a control system, a PC and a mix of automation components — with limited instructions. In a set amount of time, teams transform these various parts into working robots designed to perform specific tasks.
